The Beauty of Clouds

The Beauty of Clouds - Sanibelle, Scrumble, Scallops, Ahh

The inspiration for the string on this came from my sweetheart whom was talking about how pretty the clouds were earlier that day. I thought humm how about a string that sorta looks like layers of clouds. This is one of my favorite Zentangles so far, hope you enjoy it too!

Birdy Bird

Birdy Bird - Purk, and an attempt from memory at Isochor & Blooming Butter.

I wasn't sure where this tile was going to lead me, but I evetually ended up with this. At the 1/2 way point I wasn't even going to finish it, but I know that I should embrace when a drawing does not go as planned. So I finished it, I had a couple of attempts here - it was an attempt at Isochor, which I was doing from memory (but upon comparison, it does not look like Isochor now) Well if you didn't know I was new at this you would by how far off my memory was in making these two tangles ha ha. I was also trying to do blooming butter, which as you can see also changed. The good part is that I don't mind how they changed and I had opportunity to grow from this piece.

Whats under that Bronx Cheer

Whats under that Bronx Cheer - Baton, Quiltz, Bronx Cheer, Msst, Antidots

I'm getting better at understanding shading, so I'm excited about that. I really enjoy this piece a lot. I'm just drawn to it - haha no pun intended. The Quiltz pattern is much more open in my example than the way I have seen other draw it and its probably because I used little + marks instead of big ones.

Today there is fennel being roasted in the oven and its smelling wonderful. Have a super day!

Oh Sailor

Oh Sailor - Featherfall, Arckles, Net, Cockles n' Mussels, Floatfest, Knightsbridge, Pais

So this was the first attempt at a full size Zentangle. Although, I must confess - this one is 4x4 inches so this would be considered ZIA (Zentangled Inspired Art) at the time, it was the best paper I had in a nice small square size. I'm going to wrap this up for now - I've got to go make a good cucumber salad so it has time to sit for an hour before supper. *YUM*
